The thermomagnetic writing and erasure process has been investigated, paying special attention to the case of zero applied magnetic field. Concerning bubblelike domains, writing can easily be performed by the demagnetizing field while erasure requires an external magnetic field larger than the collapse field. However, in alloys exhibiting a compensation temperature above ambient temperature erasure can be achieved in the absence of an external field via the creation and annihilation of a ring domain which opens the capability of direct overwrite.

    The magnetophoretic potential of a system of equidistant identical ferrocylinders packed in one plane and exposed to a uniform magnetic field is studied. The influence of the structural step and the direction of magnetization of the structure are investigated.

    We present a detailed study on the magnetization under high magnetic fields of Tb5Si2Ge2 and Gd5Si2Ge2 compounds. From the Arrott plot construction (A. Arrott, Phys. Rev. 108, 1394 (1957)), we were able to estimate the TC of each structure (M and O(I)) experimentally and found that the TC of the...

    The specific heat cp and magnetization of single crystal hexagonal manganites of the type Yb1-xCaxMnO3 (x = 0, 0.05, and 0.10) were measured in a wide temperature range as a function of magnetic field. Antiferromagnetic ordering of the Mn sublattice occurs at TN = 83 K. Ca doping has...

    We report that low frequency (up to 200 kHz) noise spectra of magnetic tunnel junctions with areas 10-10 cm2 at 10 K deviate significantly from the typical 1/f behavior found in large area junctions at room temperature. In most cases, a Lorentzian-like shape with characteristic time between 0.1...

To promote the development of magnetomechanical theories, a new physical-based magnetic/stress coupling...
